Location and DescriptionReferred to variously as Paines Farm or Paynes Farm this
group of houses lies just to the north of Swinbrook, Oxon.
At various times it is referred to as
Paynes Farm in Fulbrook,
Oxon., or Taynton,
Oxon., as, even though it is some distance from those
villages, it is in their Parish.
Paynes Farm was home to one of the branches of the KILLMASTER family
that may have had links with Sarah KILLMASTER.
The KILLMASTER familyAbt 1845 Mary Letitia KILLMASTER was born at Paynes Farm to Robert
KILLMASTER (1823-) who had married Letitia HOWSE (later a farmer of
over 300 acres in Shilton, Oxon.). In abt 1847 Richard KILLMASTER was
born to the same family and again at Paynes Farm. Robert was the great
grandchild of Richard KILLMASTER and Sarah TURK, as shown on
Robert's brother, John KILLMASTER (1830-1856), married Charlotte HOWSE
but left her a widow fairly rapidly. In 1861 she is listed at
Paynes Farm and is a farmer of 100 acres. She later married into the
MORRIS family of Morris Oxford fame, William MORRIS, Lord
Nuffield, being her grandson. Her gravestone is amongst the KILLMASTER
burials at Swinbrook, Oxon.
